North Dakota Bills Would Create Annual Legislative Session
Bills have been filed in both chambers of the North Dakota Legislature advocating for annual legislative sessions.
Senate Bill 2247 would permit a 50-day session in odd-numbered years and mandate a 30-day session in even-numbered years. House Bill 1342 would permit a 60-day session in odd-numbered years, followed by a recess and a 20-day remainder session in the following year.
Currently, sessions begin in January of every odd-numbered year and are limited to 80 days.
